    All of the material on this bike trailer began disintegrating about a year ago, but I saved it because the frame was still just fine. I will make a pvc pipe "cage" to butt up against the opening. Only 2 of our chickens are in here for now, though I think with a sufficient run it could easily house 3-4 on the roost. I don't have any plans to add any chickens, but we have another flock with a rooster, so broodiness and chicken math, anything is possible!

    Start to finish it took about 4.5 hours, and I have no idea how much it cost. Under $100 for the coop and the parts I need to make the pvc pipe run
